Cancer Incidence (2008)

These statistics were published in October 2010.

“In recent years, the overall age-standardised incidence rates have fallen slightly for males and increased slightly for females. However, the rates do show considerable variation between cancers, with substantial increases in melanoma of the skin and kidney cancers (both sexes), and decreases in stomach (both sexes) and lung cancers (males only). Actual numbers of cases of cancer have risen over the last decade, largely due to an ageing population.”
